Junior Kidsday reporters went to see "Sesame Street Live 1-2-3 ... Imagine"
at the Theater at Madison Square Garden last week and they were thrilled to
see some of their favorite characters - Elmo, Bert, Ernie, The Count, Rosita

and the music. They liked that they have to use their imagination when trying
to make new friends. Some of the parts of the show were really funny.
Christian's favorite part was when Bert was trying to learn how to dance with
an octopus. He was laughing a lot when Elmo was dancing like crazy in the

Jamie Kennedy, one of the funniest guys around, has a new movie opening
tomorrow, "Son of the Mask." We went to a screening of the film and then talked
recently. We really enjoyed his performance in the movie, but we were already
big fans of his. We loved the movie "Mailbu's Most Wanted" and his TV series,
"The Jamie Kennedy Experiment."
We asked him about his challenges in the movie and he told us about the
dancing scene. He said, "I did all the scenes, and about 70 percent of the
dancing. Some of the steps were really hard, so I had to have a friend go in as
my dancing double. I can't do splits."
We are all fans of the first "Mask" movie and we asked if Jim Carrey had
any influence with the way he handled his role. Jamie said: "In some ways, he
did. No one ever saw 'The Mask' until he did it. I tried to stay away from what
he did, but I know in some ways I am going to be similar. I tried to make my
voice different and tried to play it like a dad."
We asked him how it was working with the baby and a dog. Jamie said: "The
dog is really cool and really loving. It likes to lick you a lot, but it had
claws that kept digging into me. The baby was great, but it seemed to poop a
lot. I would be holding him and in the middle of the scene I would feel
Finally, we asked what he would be doing if he wasn't an actor or comedian.
He said, "Probably delivering pizza."
